    Good on the guy.  No Rep jersey, nothing but people talking down on him (he's made my heart stop and break a few times during the year)...but he's still the captain of this club so he always gets my support and respect regardless of his salary or how he's underperforming in the eyes of others.

    Well done, frustrating he doesn't have the goods to carve up in pressure games though.

    If he's leading after Rd 24 He should win the Dally m, as he played well the last 2 weeks.

    ****ing legend. The bloke is so worth the money we pay I dont give a **** what anyone else says he has been good for the club and should have played origin.

    It's good for him to be getting these accolades this late in his career too. Well done!

    I just hope he gets a lift from it believe in himself, gains some confidence and his game magically goes to the next level, the level you'd expect from someone who's been the player of the year that and that he never folds under pressure again. Which he does seem to do at times.

    I don't agree with how voting works with this though, but it was great to see Slater lose based on the fact he lost 3 points for that suspension.

    Fantastic news.  those News Ltd purple b!tches behind him can suck their dummies.

    You'd think he'd be 2nd in line for the Aussie jersey now from that.  And first for a blue

    I'm not sure thats the case, if you where taking voting as form he'd be in a bit of a slump compared to early season form, there's no denying though earlier in the season he deserved the NSW 7.

    looking at how many points orford scored up to round 17 and then he went pointless for a while following that shows how important lyon is to oxs game. With him he is one of our best, with out him he struggles to carry the team. Thank god Lyon is back. I think you will see orfords best again in the semis.

    Hopefully this will give him the confidence boost he needs to keep a level head in the finals.
